“Down On The Corner” By Creedence Clearwater Revival

Whenever I find a classic song with easy chords I get really excited. It’s even better when the original recording uses those same easy chords! This CCR hit from the 60s only contains C, F, and G7. Try out the picking too, it’s pretty simple.

C                     G7                 C     
Early in the evening, just around supper time
                                G7            C
Over by the courthouse, they're starting to unwind
F                        C
Four kids on the corner, trying to bring you up
                              G7              C   
Willy picks a tune out and he blows it on the harp

Chorus:
F           C       G7         C           
Down on the corner, out in the street
              F             C 
Willy and the Poor-boys are playing 
          G7             C 
Bring a nickel, tap your feet 

C                               G7                C     
Rooster hits the washboard, and people just gotta smile,
                               G7          C
Blinky thumps the gut bass and solos for a while
F                                 C        
Poor-boy twangs the rhythm out on his Kalamazoo
                                G7           C         
And Willy goes into a dance and doubles on Kazoo

C                      G7            C                     
You don't need a penny just to hang around 
                                  G7             C
But if you got a nickel won't you lay your money down
F                                  C      
Over on the corner there's a happy noise 
                               G7              C
People come from all around to watch the magic boy
